From the pictures it does look kinda out of place with the streets around it - but honestly I don't think it is in person.

I take the train by and walk around that area, and while it comes off as REALLY tall, I think it accents the neighborhood more than it looks out of place. I really like this tower a lot, and hadn't even heard about it until it was tall enough to catch my attention over the other shorter ones cropping up around the area.

It always does look so isolated in rendering and photograph - but, I've never gotten that feeling from the real thing.

The first picture is amazing. The lone building under construction seperated slightly from the awesome looking skyscraper background! This one's a keeper, Thanks Retro!

A total stunner in the making.

If he were a bit taller, he'd give Hong Kong's Highcliff a run for its money.

I don't know how to find them now, but I've seen them and they are spectacular.

This was the old plan AFAIK. However, I believe it has changed slightly from the original plan.
